Fish is Fish is a fantasy book because it involves talking animals to adventure out and discover the world. This would not happen in real life because animalss would not be discussing the characteristics of people, cows and birds.The theme within Fish is Fish was highly climatic and humerous. The way the fish would dream about the pictures of the other animals was very goofy and saddening because he could not understand. The relationship between the frog and the fish is catching because in the beginning the friendship is closely bonded.

Be satisfied with your sourroundings, where you live, what you do... a good read for mom and dad too. Very colorful and eye catching for the kids. Neat to think of how you might picture things if you didn't have any idea what they looked like- that's what the fish does. And he winds up happy just being where he is and not wishing for anything more. Love this book and highly recommend.

I like how the book told the story through the minnow's eyes. It gave information on how a minnow becomes a full grown fish and a tadpole becomes a frog. The fish tries to be like the frog, because he wants to leave his enviroment and see the world. He finds out that sometimes the grass is not greener on the other side. When the frog helps him get back into the pond, he realizes this fact. The Fish's enviroment provides everything he needs and Fish is Fish.
